    Oh dear, what a disappointment

    Dear reader and ceremonialist. Mr Lisiewski seems to have a fundamental misunderstanding of how magick really works. His view seems to be that it is the outward form followed that makes the magick work, that if one deviates even slightly from the outward form of the ritual, if one substitutes just one of the many tools, implements, or ingredients of a ritual, it will fail, or give poorer results. This cannot be further from the truth. Magick comes from within, and from the energy that is produced within us, and which flows throughout the universe. It is powered by your belief that it works, and so rightly – and this is pretty much the one and only point I do agree with the author on - the system or paradigm you use MUST be in unity with your religious/spiritual and psychological beliefs. I am not a Catholic, so using the Catholic paradigm would cause internal dissonance, which is much more likely to cause the ritual to fail, than simply substituting red candles, for black for example...unless of course, like Mr Lisiewski you BELIEVE that substitution of any part of the process WILL cause the operation to fail. So in summing up, if you are of the same religious/spiritual background as the author, as well as taking the same attitude to magick, then this book could just well be the one for you. If not, view it more as an anecdotal account of the authors experience, and a lesson warning of the dangers of rigidity and fundamentalist attitudes in magick and the Occult.
